Living wills and health care power of attorney

Most people want to know that they will be taken care of if they are injured, but they also tend to have a preference for how they are treated. In many cases, people are able to communicate their wishes on their own, but what happens if they are not able to do so?

There are legal arrangements that allow people to specify exactly how they want to be cared for (or not cared for) in the event they are for some reason made incapable of communicating their health care preferences on their own. However, even if they have specified how they want to be cared for, someone still has to be responsible for making those wishes are carried out properly.
